Canada will send three representatives to compete at the 2007 UCI Track World championships in Mallorca from March 29 - April 1. The performances of team members Gina Grain, Zach Bell, and Travis Smith will be managed by Kris Westwood and coached by Houshang Amiri.

Last year's scratch race silver medalist Grain will only race the points race this year since the scratch race is not part of the program at the Olympics in Beijing. She is aiming for a top five finish as she uses this year to switch to a new priority event.

Smith will ride with a top eight finish target in the men's sprint or the keirin. On the endurance side, Bell is slated for the men's points race and the individual pursuit, but the latter event will serve as a warm-up for the former.
